I love the colors.

It looks like a very colourful wedding - I love all the pinks and reds against the green backgrounds.

I think I would be dumping #4 - I'm not sure where your focus is (or why if it's on his flower) and her facial expression isn't flattering. She's the bride and so the images you present should show her either having a blast & happy or contemplative or overcome with positive emotions etc or as beautiful as she can be imho

#4 is a favourite of both the bride and the groom. She was putting her foot down and the flowers were about to be her weapon of choice, hence the focus on the flowers.

When I shoot I try and show the event as I see it. What I present to them depends upon how they are. I find that along side the the tradition approach a wider range of moment are appreciated. Unplanned incidences and and unguarded moments are the ones which tend to be associated with stories that people laugh about looking back.

4) Is the groom's flower in focus? I like the effect you're going for

5) I wish you had focus on the other kid in the back

6) Is that a traditional plate of wedding food? Just curious. Never seen curry and rice in a heart shape before haha

I think it may just be my style, but id like to see them with a bit of a bump in exposure.

4 I would like the focus on her flowers rather than his, but hindsight is 20/20 right?

Yes, that's what I was saying about #4. I get the moment but focus point could have been better selected imho because the groom's flowers, where the focus is, are not part of the photos story. But it kinda works and it IS a moment :)

eh, I was gonna say something. But i think issues of uncle bobs have been beaten to death already. I think the rest of the people are just saying you commenting will have no impact on the endless supply of uncle bobs + it'll probably hurt some feelings. But that aside, uncle bobs are just an obstacle that good photographers learn to deal with.

True, Focusing on the main bunch may have worked better.I'm shooting primes wide open and still working on choosing the right focus point when things a happening without your input, but that 's what keeping it interesting right? I will try to get both given a similar situation next. That way I will have options.

I will open up the blacks a bit and see how it looks to me, thanks.

The idea moment I just missed, they just started heading off in a direction completely in unison The 5D just did not lock quick enough

Yep pretty much the standard tradition indian food around here. The heart was too cute :)

Personally I used relatively long lens and kept back but many people did not. As you say these are issues that need to be managed.

A competent photographer should not really have an issue with other people shooting. His/Her work should stand head and shoulder above the guests otherwise they may be in the wrong business or price bracket.

It is not just a day for the bride and groom, it is a day for the family and friends also.

The only problem I have is split-focus when shooting formals and engaging with the guest and a few polite words will fix that.

I think we can all agree that things got a little out of hand here. The thread has been pruned and we will be keeping an eye on all parties involved.

Perhaps now would be a good time to re-read the forum rules, specifically the one where Pekka says "Don't be a jerk". Here is the link: https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?p=353304
